Vogler (psychology, Pomona Coll.) and Bartz (psychology, American River Coll.) offer this helpful book that deals realistically with the problem of teenagers and alcohol. Fact is, most tee ns do not ``just say no.'' Ninety-two percent of all teens will try alcohol before they finish hig h school, and two-thirds of them will become regular drinkers while still in school. Vogler and Ba rtz stress the critical role of parents in affecting their children's decisions about drinking. Th ey are specific in describing blood-alcohol levels, encouraging activities which open parent/child communication, and supporting appropriate action when alcohol abuse occurs. The tone is sensible, specific, and sympathetic. This book should be required reading for parents, teachers, and youth workers, whether the goal is abstinence or toleration. Highly recommended for public libraries.
